CS:GO: The Most Expensive Skins in 2022

The most expensive CS:GO skins your money can buy.

Even though CS:GO is one of the biggest eSports in the world and among the most competitive games out there, many people play for fun. Some don’t even care if they are good or bad because they focus on having as many skins as possible.

We’ve already covered some of the most popular CSGO skins for some weapons, so feel free to check our previous articles for more information. This game's skins do not provide additional perks like more damage or better aim. However, they make given weapons look way cooler. This is enough to make them extremely popular, especially among casual players.

New skins become available in CS:GO all the time, so it shouldn’t be surprising that some items become more popular than others. However, certain options will always be trendy among players. 

Instead of covering cheap CS:GO skins that everyone can get, this article will focus on the most expensive ones. Of course, the information here is valid as of mid-2022, and it may change in the future, but the options here will always be among the most expensive ones. The things you are about to see are not listed in a particular order.

M9 Bayonet Crimson Web in Factory New

We’d like to start with a skin for a weapon everyone has access to – a knife. There are loads of good options you can go for, but one of them stands out. Depending on when you’re reading this article, the M9 Bayonet Crimson Web can cost up to $12,000.

As its name implies, this skin makes the knife look red and includes a unique pattern resembling a spider web. There are more expensive skins for the knife, but this one is special, which is why it deserves to be on the list.

The M9 Bayonet Crimson Web became available in 2013 as a part of The Arms Deal update. Despite the fact that there were many new skins after that, this one remained among the preferred options. If you want to get in as a Factor New, you should be ready to spend a lot of money.

Karambit Case Hardened Blue Gem in Factory New

While we are on the topic of CSGO knife skins, we must address the elephant in the room. As mentioned, several options stand out when it comes down to this weapon, and one of them is the Karambit Case Hardened Blue Gem. 

People interested in this skin in Factory New will be blown away by the astronomical prizes. Since this is one of the rarest skins in the game (hence the name Blue Gem), it can often reach prices that are difficult to comprehend. According to some sources, a CS: GO player that had it received an offer that exceed $1,000,000. 

To be fair, skins like this one are like diamonds in real life – they cost as much as someone else is willing to pay for them. The fact that someone wants to spend over $1M for skin doesn’t mean it is that expensive, so you may find it cheaper.

AWP Gungnir in Factory New

After covering some of the top skins for your knife, it is time to take a look at one of the most popular weapons in CS:GO. You can go for tons of unique AWP skins, and almost all of them look great. However, a few of them stand out when it comes to expensive options.

The first option is the AWP Gungnir in a Factory New condition. This skin includes a unique pattern that is inspired by Norse mythology, which is good news for everyone interested in it. Aside from the light blue, the skin also includes an “ivory” color, and, surprisingly, the two work together.

People interested in the Gungnir skin in Factory New condition will have to spend more than $7000, at least at the time of writing this guide. The skin became available in November 2019, and it is slowly becoming more popular. No one knows how much it will cost in the future, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it goes up in value.

AK-47 Fire Serpent in Factory New

We’ve briefly covered this CSGO skin in our article that focused on the best options for the AK-47. However, due to its high price, this option also deserves to be on this list.

The Fire Serpent, as its name implies, includes a drawing of a green dragon and other colors like grey and blue. Even though the skin does not affect the entire weapon, it makes it stand out.

Like other skins on this list, the Fire Serpent became available many years ago. There have been multiple AK-47 skins after that, but almost none of them come close to this one. This explains why people who want to get it in a Factory New conditions should be ready to spend more than $8000.

Souvernir AWP Dragon Lore

The next thing we’d like to point out in this article is the Souvenir AWP Dragon Lore, one of the most beautiful skins in the game. The skin features unique colors like orange, red and yellow, making it stand out, especially from your average AWP skin. Aside from the unique colors, this skin also has a dragon that makes it even more imposing.

Naturally, a beautiful AWP skin in CSGO doesn’t come cheap, especially if it is rare. This option became available during the Cobblestone Collection and had a drop chance of around 1/250 000. As a result, people who want to get their hands on it must be ready to spend between $30,000 and $70,000.

All the skins mentioned here are amazing, so definitely check them out if you want to use a lot of money. With that being said, you do not need to spend a fortune to have a CSGO skin that looks cool. The game offers many alternatives, some of which only cost a few cents. So, make sure to learn more about them by visiting the Steam Marketplace.
